CHAPTER NINE - THE GIANTS RETURN
by Barry Chamish
- In November, 1994 I sent a summary of
the UFO landings and giant sightings between April-July 1993 to the television
show Sightings. By January, a Sightings crew was in place to record the
incidents. As if the visitors knew about my plans, they returned after
a long hiatus, just in time for Sightings to film some of the most convincing
evidence of giants ever recorded. In late December, Yossi Torner photographed
a huge, round, orange UFO hovering over Haifa, which was reproduced in
the large circulation newspaper, Yediot Ahronot. I called him to try and
receive the original print and he informed me, "Yediot returned my
whole roll of film but said they lost the negative of the UFO. I think
they're lying and it was confiscated from me." A week later, on the
first Tuesday of 1995, Israel had an incident that must be included amongst
the most powerful encounters of any nation. Herzl Consatini, the security
chief of the village of Yatzitz, ten miles east of Rishon Letzion, heard
an explosion which shook his friend Danny Ezra's house. He opened the front
door to investigate and was confronted with, "a giant, three meters
tall, wearing grey foily clothes. His face was hidden from view by an electronic-looking
mist." Terrified, he slammed the door and told Ezra to look through
his curtains. He took one glance and fainted. Herzl called the police,
who were reluctant to believe him but nonetheless, arrived within twenty
minutes. They found deep, mysterious tracks outside Ezra's house. Thinking
that terrorists had infiltrated the village, dozens of army trackers and
snipers were called in. The found 8.5 kilometers of totally unexplainable
tracks. The tracks were made by shoes which dug 35 cm. into the hard soil
at the sole, and between 5 and 10 at the heel. Later testing of the ground
by the police suggested that the creature had to have weighed over a ton
to make such deep tracks.
- The tracks were made in twos but occasionally,
a third round mark appeared between them. I guessed this was a walking
stick of some kind. Sometimes the tracks were like a human gait, then there
would be a twelve foot gap before the tracks began again. At times, the
creature which made them, must have jumped or floated enormous distances.
The tracks led army trackers to the village of Karmei Yosef, which had
been the center of UFO activity the year before. There, unidentified red
lights hovered above the village and one villager claimed the lights sent
a blue beam at her through her bedroom window.
- The trackers could make no guess at who
or what made the prints in the ground, so the police called in the head
of the regional office of the Nature Reserves Authority, who originally
disclosed that the tracks were made by a camel. When it was revealed that
the camel would have had to have been two-legged and wearing boots, he
next guessed an antelope made the tracks. A flying antelope, it was noted.
Finally, he admitted to Yediot Ahronot, "The tracks may well have
been made by giants from outer space." I travelled to Yatzitz four
days later and was joined by several dozen curiosity seekers. More than
10,000 Israelis would eventually arrive to see the giant tracks. I met
Danny Ezra first and can only say, he seemed in a daze still. He was not
forthcoming about his experience. Herzl Consantini was enjoying his new
fame (that, too would end) and showed me his medical certificates. He was
rushed to hospital the evening after his encounter with one gonad blown
up "like a balloon." The doctor who signed the report wrote that
the cause of the affliction was unknown but heavy doses of antibiotics
brought down the swelling.
- Herzl agreed to be filmed by Sightings
and two young boys who had overheard the conversation told me they had
something interesting to tell as well. The night after the incident, they
had filmed a UFO over the village. The boys, Coby (13) and Itamar (11)
Saadon filmed a white object, shaped like a child's spinning top darting
like a moth in the sky. In the background, the family dog was barking wildly
and the boys' mother told me, "You should see what's around his doghouse."
We walked outside and saw a burnt circle of six ft. diameter around the
dog's pen. A foam cushion within was melted by the heat yet there were
no charcoals or anything hinting at fuel to be seen. "The dog has
been terrified ever since," Coby explained.
- Next to make headlines was the Gueta
animal mutilations of Moshav Porat, two miles from Kadima. Rachel Gueta
awoke and found her dog whining. Its eyes had been removed bloodlessly.
Twenty minutes later it died. She proceeded to the sheep pen and saw all
three sheep dead. Their cheeks had been shaved and a 2 cm hole dilled through
the bone. All blood had been drained and the animals would not rot, even
five months after being thrown in the local dump. Next she went to her
chicken coop and found all 35 birds frozen dead in their roosts. There
had been no panic among them at the time of death. Outside the coop was
a 4.5 meter crop circle, typical of the Kadima wave of 1993. I phoned my
producer at Sightings and told her the stories. She told me later she didn't
believe me and there were discussions about cancelling the filming because
of my unreliability. My faxing her newspaper reports of the one ton Yatzitz
giant saved the project. And to this day, I think the aliens decided to
help me out. After the Sightings crew began its filming, those otherworld
forces provided us with almost live action.
- On January 14, we visited Hanna Somech
in Burgata. We were preceded by two days by a far more dramatic visitor.
Hanna's daughter "felt" the presence of a giant watching over
her bed and she ran the 100 yards from her house to her mother's where,
"I held my mother's hands all night." The next morning they saw
the circles from Hannah's house to her daughter's bedroom window. And so
did we, two days later. I counted 18 circles big and small in the dark.
Undoubtedly I missed some. There were counter-clockwise circles on the
grass, in bushes and on high treetops. To cause a fraud, the trickster
would have had to have hovered over twenty foot trees with a counter-rotating
giant fan. The Sightings crew, incidentally, all skeptics about UFOs, grasped
quickly enough that something as unexplainable as Yatzitz had occurred
- Hanna related her encounter of June 1993
when she told a giant off for making her dog fly in the air and hurting
it. (see Chapter Three). She told the interviewer that there was another
incident when she had seen a craft floating outside her door. She related
being called to "in my head" by name at different times. But
perhaps most significant of all, she admitted that 25 years before she
had been pregnant and the fetus disappeared with no medical explanation.
She provided the name of the doctor who attended her and offered to present
written documentation. She now believes the lost pregnancy was related
to the current visitations. (Batya Shimon of Rishon Letzion became preganant
after her July '93 encounter with a dozen giants. "There is no way
it could have happened naturally," she insisted. On January 15, the
giants or whoever or whatever again decided to help the Sightings project.
A UFO was spotted over Kadima and in the morning a monster 18 meter circle
was found. When we arrived, it was literally still warm. We put our hands
within and they were covered in the red oil found during the 1993 wave.
As usual silicon was discovered and it later tested 99.35% pure by the
University of Manchester (England) Materials Science laboratory. All the
evidence of 1993 was presented just when the film crew needed it most.
And when the filming ended, so did the incidents at Kadima for many months.
- Israeli ufologisu Zvi Bighest photographed
the filming at the circle and when he developed the film later that day,
something emerged that seemed to defy logic. In the background of the circle
are two "beings" seemingly watching the humans examine their
landing mark. None of us remembered the objects being there. But Doron
Rotem noted that tractors were in the area and might have been passing
by. The photos were examined, enlarged and published in numerous magazines
including Fate, Magazin 2000 and UFO Universe. In each case, the editors
ruled out any tractor shape and agreed that whatever they were, the two
figures matched the bald, round-faced giants described by the witnesses.
The giants had returned. And this time they chose to leave no doubt about
their presence. They left miles of impossible boot tracks in hard mud,
they swirled circles in tall trees, they produced a huge, hard-to-miss
landing circle and they may have allowed themselves to be photographed.
